Fred Rico 1969 Kansas City Royals

"My first day in the big leagues was a memorable one."

He hit a line drive over third base for a double in his first at bat. His next at bat, he hit another line drive between third and short for a single.

Fred tell s a great story about standing on first after that first career single. He says that he thought to himself that the big leagues were going to be easy.

The very next pitch he was picked off of first.

Fred says that Mickey Mantle was his favorite player.
